Reflecting on the creation to recognise the creator
Ashaar: Jaha me juz tere jalwo ke chaare su kya he
The praises of All?h SWT are such that if all the trees of the world had to be made into pens and all the water of the ocean had to be converted into ink, the pens and ink would be depleted, but the praises of Allah will never be completed! Over the centuries of Islam, great personalities have expressed Hamd-e-Baari (the praises of Allah SWT) in beautiful and eloquent words. Included in this is the poetry of the great Alim of our time, Hazrat Mufti Taqi Usmani (DB), whose compositions lend a glimpse of his baatini kayfiyah (inner condition). Hazrat expresses how in this universe, wherever a person looks, what else does he see besides Allah SWT?! If one just reflects on the amazing makhl?q of All?h SWT, the mind boggles! Hazrat says, ‘When a person sets out in search of You, O Allah, the reality of the destination is to become mad in Your love!’ The Ashiq Mu’min puts aside intellect and the love of every other thing, his purpose of existence being purely for Allah. For him, the Fiqhi categorisation of actions doesn’t distract from deeds; he loves and looks forward to practicing a Mustahab act as much as a Fardh act, as seen in the lives of the Auliya Allah. The gathering in which there is no mention of Allah is useless and hopeless! We should endeavour to make it a common practice to speak about His greatness, not letting our gatherings go without some Zikr of All?h and the dua for expiation taught by Nabi-e-Kareem ?.
